Rep. Boustany on the Impacts of GSP Expiration

In this morning’s House Ways and Means mark up of the trade preferences bill, Representative Charles Boustany (R-LA) spoke about the importance of renewing GSP for companies in the United States, Louisiana, and his 3rd District. In particular, he highlighted the impacts of expiration on K2 Coolers in New Iberia (clip below).

K2 Coolers is one of the nearly 700 companies and associations that have come out in support of GSP renewal – and not the only supporter list company mentioned during the mark up. In his introduction of the bill, Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee Chairman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) noted that GSP renewal would help companies like The Cannon Group in Westerville grow their businesses and “ultimately create jobs.”
